Went there for our first lunch in Piedmont. The food was excellent (ravioli stuffed with snails, a local delicacy, another kind of pasta, 2 different pana cottas), and the Barolo of superb quality for a very, very decent price. Add to this a friendly owner, and this was one of our best eating experiences in the region.

We stopped in the somewhat sleepy village of Cherasco while driving through Piedmont. We'd come primarily for the snails, and this was one of the restaurants mentioned on TA that did good snails. As it turned out, we weren't too impressed by the main dish of snails served that day - might just have been personal preferences - but we did like the quiche starter made with snails. The rest of the food, however, was pretty impressive, in particular the Tajarin and the lamb. Service was friendly, and the half-Italian / half-Venezuelan lady who served us spoke English perfectly, which was helpful as we'd struggled in some other restaurants in Italy. Finding the restaurant was fairly easy, although initially we thought it was closed as the entire street was deserted.

We visited the restaurant and enjoyed the classical atmosphere in the beautyful Cherasco.
We ordered from the menu and chose not to follow the suggested daily tourist menu at €25 per person.
The Vitello Tonnato was rich with flavour - and the local dish Tagliata (fine pasta) with ragū (bolognese) was very tasty. For Secondo we went for Formaggio (selection of cheeses) and grilled pork with beens. Both fresh and great.
It is possible to have wine by the glass at fair prices (e.g. Barolo 2001 at €8)
Very recommendable.

Reservations here are notoriously hard to snag,both because of the eateries' size - 2 tables- and its reputation which has legend writ all over it. A short wait is rewarded with terrific snail dishes - one with wild mushrooms,another with tomatoes and chillies. We tried the gnocci made with a velvety sauce of cream and Castelmagno,a fruity tang. Then a beautiful plate of cured leg of lamb with arugula,sweet cherry tomatoes,extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.

We added an antipasto,called carpione,a piquant chicken dish with batons of zucchini. Our fine feathered bird was pickled for a duet of days in white wine vinegar and water,served lightly chilled. We drank a juicy,inexpensive Dolcetto d'Alba from Renatto Ratti. Great place for revving up your soul and firing up being alive,

We ate there for dinner, and it was really nice. The menu does not offer many choices, mainly local specialties, but tasting very good. The staff was nice as well.
